The Prize

Bottle of Brunello di Montalcino, 1975 - Castello "Poggio alle Mura".

This wine, like all vintage wines in general, is subject to a multitude of variables that condition aging with the passing of time so as not to guarantee its drinkability.

Vintage wine is not to be considered as a product to be tasted, but as an emotion that brings with it the memories of a past time. It is first and foremost a valuable collector's item and, later, if you are lucky, a wine to savour.

Brunello di Montalcino is made from the Sangiovese grape, a variety traditionally referred to as Brunello in this area. The regulations governing wine production dictate that the maximum production of grapes per hectare must be less than 8 tons/ha (approximately 52 hl/ha of wine). It also dictates the date of the wine being released onto the market, which is January 1st of the fifth year after harvesting. During this long period, the wine must spend at least two years in wooden barrels and age at least four months in the bottle. The Riserva wine must age at least 6 months in the bottle, and is released a year later onto the market.

Content: 72 cl

Volume: 13%

Please note: Preserved professionally for over 50 years in a special cellar, this is a collector's bottle, therefore the quality of the wine cannot be guaranteed.

 

 

 

The Cause

Dottor Sorriso Onlus was founded in 1995 with the mission of making children's hospital stays more pleasant by giving them back their smile with Clown Therapy. Thanks to the support of private individuals, businesses and institutions, the foundation achieves its mission by having professional clowns carry out their work inside hospitals and rehabilitation centers, in strict collaboration with the medical professionals. The Dottor Sorriso clowns currently operate in 29 pediatric wards, 18 hospitals and 3 rehabilitation institutes, bringing smiles to more than 30,000 children every year, in 12 provinces all over Italy.

Dottor Sorriso Onlus was the first organization in Italy to even introduce Clown Therapy to rehabilitation institutes, to bring smiles and laughter to children affected by intellectual and motor disabilities. At the same time, over the years, the foundation has created a series of international projects in support of other organizations operating in difficult or emergency settings such as Macedonia, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Romania, India, Palestine and Burkina Faso.
